AKG WMS420 Guitar/Instrument Wireless System at a Glance:
  • Optimized for superior performance
  • Flexible and economical battery options
  • Cherish your freedom to rock
Optimized for superior performance and flexibility

The WMS420 wireless system includes AKG's R420 stationary receiver, which features detachable antennas. Sweetwater's FOH engineers appreciate thoughtful professional features and we like this one because it allows the use of pro-level accessories such as antenna splitters and remote-mounted directional antennas for multichannel systems. Further, the system uses diversity antennas (with the receiver antenna being frequency-range-optimized) for superior performance in congested multipath situations. Whether you need a simple, single-channel setup or a complex multichannel system, the WMS420 makes a great starting point. With up to eight channels per band, the WMS420 lets you start out simply, and add to your system as your needs dictate.

Flexible, economical battery options

The WMS420 wireless system consists of the SR420 stationary receiver, instrument cable, and the PT420 bodypack transmitter. The PT420 transmitter is equipped with charging contacts that let you conveniently charge your rechargeable batteries without removing them. The rechargeable option also gives you the potential of considerable cost savings over time - a big plus for installations. And speaking of batteries, the PT420 gives you an outstanding eight hours of operation from a single AA, which reduces your operating costs in day-to-day use.

Cherish your freedom to rock

If you play guitar or bass, you want to be able to perform untethered, and with the AKG WMS420 wireless instrument system, you can do just that. You'll still get high-fidelity "wired" sound, though, because AKG engineered the WMS420 with sophisticated technologies such as diversity antennas that perform admirably in adverse, congested multipath conditions. Dual frequency-range-optimized receiver antennas automatically adjust for the signal being transmitted to ensure the best reception.

Worry-free Wireless!

We wanted you to know that all of the wireless systems you see here — and all of the wireless systems available at Sweetwater — are 100% compliant with the Federal Communication Commission's new rules governing wireless systems. You can be confident that these systems will work safely and within the permitted frequency/power ranges, just as they are. However, please be aware that by choosing to use systems that operate in the 700MHz range or by modifying a new wireless system you receive from us, you may cause your system to operate outside the FCC's new guidelines. If that's the case, you may need a license to operate the unit. To find out more, visit the FCC's wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones or give them a call at (888) CALL-FCC.

What can I say. Impressed right out of the gate. Got it in two days! Plugged up and started playing. No delay! No Noise! I researched a lot of wireless and found you get what you pay for so i spent the extra cash and its absolutely worth it. Have two gigs coming up so I will follow up then.Thanks Zach! Awesome sales folks as well.

Top notch value

This unit is the same Fender 1010 wireless that was up for far less a week or so ago. Specs are Identical in every way. Nice of Fender to throw these away. These are top notch. I 've been using wireless gear for over 40 years. This is the best for the bucks you can get. Right out of the box perfection, a slight adjustment to the output pot and you are on your way. Fantastic unit.
